Nice, light surf rod for a great price
I really like the rods from Star. When I don't want to load up the $300 Lami, this is a great option for a lighter day.

11' MH 2-5oz
I like this rod, its light, smooth casting, has good bend on the top half and strong backbone on the bottom
Proseverything said above
Consthe reason I bought this rod is because the handle length is short, in the description it listed at 19 inches, but mine is 22 1/2 from the bottom of reel seat to the butt, either tackledirect list it wrong or I have the older model

A friend recommended this rod as a good affordable light rid for stripers. It was really nice for an hour or so...throwing light lures really well. Then it broke while retrieving a lure with seaweed on it. Tackledirect is standing behind it but it's disappointing.

9' Star Stellar Surf Rod
Rod was a Christmas gift from my daughter. She knows my tackle preferences. Rod is on par with rods I normally use, Daiwa and Lamiglas. Rod is very well made with a nice parabolic action and "feel". I'm looking forward to fishing with it soon.

Beautiful Rod with Fuji guides
70/30 split rod. Fast shipping and well packaged. Description says pac bay guides but is a mistake the rod has fuji guides. Extremely nice finish and wrappings. Very nice 11' rod.
ProsExcellent quality and a lifetime warranty, light.

Perfect bucktail & sp minnor rod
This is a perfect size and action for bucktails and sp minnows from the surf. I am extremely picky with my rods and this one is THE ONE. I have bought, tried and sold a tica dolphin 8-9, triumph 8-9, star stellar surf 8mh-9, lamiglass insane 9, airwave 7-9, st croix mojo 7-9. I went through a lot of rods and this rod beats them all. Pair it with a 4000-5000 reel and you have a perfect surf combo for 1/2-2oz lures.
Prosone piece strong guides larger guides perfect for braid to leader knots light real moderate action short butt length
Consone piece

Great rod. With a 3 to 5 oz plug the rod loads nicely and launches it.

Great rod!
This rod is so light weight but it has some serious backbone. It casts like a dream and makes lure fishing off the beach a lot more pleasurable. The fact that this is a one piece rod versus the typical two piece makes me like it even more. Great purchase at a great price.

Great Rod!!
bought this rod for throwing light ducktails and diamond jigs from the beach, and its perfect for just that. i really couldn't be happier with this rod, definitely my favorite. paired it up with a 3000 procyon ex and its a great light combo that dominates striped bass and bluefish!
Prosrod takes abuse!!

Star Surf Rod (a Great Backup Rod)
I purchased this rod as a backup to my primary surf rods. (St.Croix Mojo Stick) Ive seen many rods break in the heat of a bass or blue fish blitz so it is just an inexpensive insurance to keep fishing. Plus it is two piece and it stores quite well. Nice stick for the money. The wrap and handle reel seat are top rate rod looks more expensive than it is. Quite satisfied run a Van Staal 150 on it with 30 braid chucks bucktails to 2.5 oz and plugs nicely. Good starter rod for first time surf fisherman.

Great all around rod from Specks to King Mackerel.
Great rod, very light weight but can cast a mile. Love the weight of the lure vs size of the rod ratio. Paired mine with a Penn Battle 4000 with 15 lb. 300 yds braid and I've caught speckled trout from my kayak to king mackerel fishing throwing x-raps on the pier. Highly suggest the surf model for inshore or offshore light tackle fishing.
ProsLightweight, flexible, good backbone, quality parts including the cork wrapping, reel seat and guides. And great price.
ConsNo hook keeper.

Great rod for a good price
Very nice rods for their price point. Good back bone and can heave lures out there. If your not trying to spend $200 plus on a rod then get this. Awesome warranty aswell.
ProsGood price. Great warranty. Overall good rod.

Great surf rod
took it out this weekend and hooked on to some 5 to 6 foot black tip sharks on the pier. Had a Penn reel with 30 lbs braid on it. Very strong rod, lots of back bone but not to heavy. I really enjoyed fishing with it.
Conscould use a hook holder. I hate to use the eyes as a hook holder.

The best reel size would be 4000 Penn, Shimano, and Okuma 40 reels. For a Daiwa i would have to advise a 3000 or 3500 size reel.
